I love going to thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales so I decided to join this blog hop.

Go to the thrift store/charity shop and buy an item for less that £1 ($1.50 approximately).
Take a photo of the item when you get home.
Take an “in progress” photo.
Take a photo when you have finished making your item.
And blog about it on Saturday August 4th.
